Agnes von Kurowsky and Ernest Hemingway, Milan, Italy

“I did not care what I was getting into. . . . I did not love Catherine Barkley nor had any idea of loving her. This was a game, like bridge, in which you said things instead of playing cards. Like bridge you had to pretend you were playing for money or playing for some stakes. Nobody had mentioned what the stakes were.”

– Lieutenant Frederic Henry, A Farewell to Arms
